JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A man suspected of breaking into Nelson Catalina’s home while he and his wife slept was reportedly wearing the former A-State coach’s ring when a deputy arrested him.

Poinsett County Sheriff’s Deputy Bobby New arrested Jason Miller, 38, of Marked Tree following a traffic stop Monday on Arkansas Highway 14 just hours after the burglary, according to a news release from the Jonesboro Police Department.

At the time of his arrest, New reportedly recovered some of Catalina’s property, including a $3,500 ring that Miller was wearing.

Paul Holmes, public information specialist for the JPD, said “Additional stolen items were recovered inside the vehicle Miller was driving.”

All of the items, with the exception of three pairs of boots, were recovered and returned to the Catalinas.

Miller is charged with residential burglary; theft of property over $1,000 and less than $5,000; and breaking or entering.

He also faces felony charges in Poinsett County and is currently being held there awaiting transfer to the Craighead County Detention Center.

“Outstanding cooperation between the agencies and the great work of Deputy Bobby New resulted in this arrest,” said Vic Brooks, Jonesboro police detective.
